The label that brought you the first releases from Biffy Clyro, Belle and Sebastian, Snow Patrol, The Pastels, King Creosote and Teenage Fanclub are proud to announce the debut album from Young Aviators. Electric Honey, the in-house record label at Stow College, has long been associated with quality acts across various genres and now presents Self Help - the first full-length from the young Glasgow based, Irish garage-pop trio Young Aviators. Known for their hugely catchy fuzzed-out riffs, massive melodies and tongue-in-cheek observations, their debut is a sonic rush that recalls the best of guitar pop from throughout the ages. With nods to the classics from The Kings and Zombies, the joyous punk of Buzzcocks and The Undertones, filtered through a garage-rock lens, the debut album from Young Aviators never loses sight of the melodies. Despite the energy and brightness present throughout the record, Self Help deals with issues that are affecting thousands of Britain’s young people, with sardonic songs about failure, rejection and stagnation, through to the uncertain future many are facing. The songs on their debut album Self Help are written from the heart and born out of the post-graduate experience of debt and poverty. Young Aviators recorded Self Help in Chem19 studios in Glasgow in early 2013, with producer Jamie Savage (whose brother and studio owner Paul Savage formed The Delgados and established the influential Chemikal Underground label).
White Heath are an Edinburgh-based 6 piece who are currently signed to Glasgow record label Electric Honey – one time home to Biffy Clyro and Belle & Sebastian. Combining an anything-goes attitude to music composition with a fusion of contemporary rock and pop with the western classical cannon, they produce an inspiring, emotive and thrilling sound.
Electric Honey Records, Stow College's acclaimed student-run record label, are proud to present their latest signing, The State Broadcasters. Based in Glasgow, the sextet's music is rooted in guitar-based indie, beautifully infused with the folk sounds brought in by the numerous and diverse instruments they employ, including fiddles, harmonica, clarsach and glock. "Let's Make T-Shirts" is a journey into the joy and intensity of first love, which can't, and won't, fail to bring a smile to your face. Finding inspiration from a fountain of influences, including, but not limited to, artists such as Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, Laura Cantrell, Tom Waits and Emmylou Harris, their moving songs making their way to your very heart, calming and comforting it with their relaxing sounds.
